Offered year-round, the LiveFit! program introduces local schools, community businesses and organizations to the world of adapted sport and recreation through assemblies and live demonstrations. LiveFit! presentations bring an awareness of the abilities of all people.  The presentation lasted roughly an hour and was used as a tie-in to the Sochi, Russia 2014 Olympic Games.  The 2014 Paralympic Games also take place in Sochi, March 7-16, 2014.
